A Sprig of Spring

 

 

A splash of sun

A sprig of spring

A stunning rebirth

As life goes green

Blockhead Am I

  • Playing around with new editor. I need a tutorial!
  • Not understanding how to add more than one image at a time
  • Seems like you have to choose one at a time and then create your own layout using blocks; but that’s pure conjecture on my part
  • Good god, y’all!

Mangos, Strawberries and Spinach, Oh My…

New blender arrived today and now I’m all happy making a smoothie!

NUTRIENT DENSE

Begin with Carrots

Aw, nuthin’




So odd
Yet,
In a way,
Not so odd

So discontentedly satisfied
So patiently agitated
So freely mitigated
So subversively brave

So intensely moderated
For the flag that I wave

Am I 
standing short 
as someone
who I can imagine
as enough
as is

So extremely vigilant
So hyper-attenuated
So assertively meek

So sublimely uncertain
For the purpose I seek

I am

Instead

Colors

Emily Dickinson

Foreword

I’m just not in love with forewords to books.

I want to read the book itself not what someone I don’t even know thinks about it.

This might mean I’m not intellectual enough. But sometimes having someone dissect a work of art just seems condescending as if I won’t get it just by the author’s words. Might be insulting to the writer in a way.

If it needs a foreword, is it because the writer didn’t make things clear in the book?

I might like an “afterword” especially if I don’t feel like finishing a book that I’m not wild about and I want a summary of it. Or if it’s so great I want to have a conversation about it–even a remote one.

Sometimes I’ll read the foreword after i read the book–if it draws me in. I usually try reading the foreword up to the point I become exasperated. That tends to happen if it’s a long ordeal: write your own damn book why doncha’ ?

That’s my two cents!

Anyway…. I wonder what other people think about forewords? Helpful? What do you say, other people?
